New Neighbor: wagamama

The Flatiron District extends a warm welcome to wagamama, a Japanese-inspired fast casual restaurant by way of the United Kingdom, making its New York City debut today. The bi-level space, with exposed brick walls and pendant lamps, features communal tables and an open kitchen, both trademarks of wagamama's 140 stores across Europe, the Middle East and Boston. Just steps away from Madison Square Park, wagamama is a welcome addition to the neighborhood's burgeoning fast-casual food scene.

"We're excited to bring wagamama to this vibrant, bustling neighborhood because NoMad and Flatiron are truly representative of New York's rich culture and history; a great place for us to start our New York story,” says Will Garcia, General Manager of wagamama NoMad/Flatiron. With four stores in Boston and now its first New York location in the Flatiron District, the brand’s expansion is a sign of its growing popularity in the United States.

Led by Executive Chef Steve Mangleshot, wagamama is dishing up its signature favorites, including wholesome ramen, savory teppanyaki, and fresh pressed juices. The NoMad/Flatiron location marks a series of firsts for the restaurant chain, including the debut of an Asian-inspired weekend brunch, and a full cocktail menu designed specifically for its New York City clientele.

Hours are Monday through Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., Friday from 11:00 a.m. to midnight, Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to midnight, and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
